Join the Old Barracks Museum as they recognize the achievements of Linda Shockley, a remarkable woman involved in New Jersey historic preservation.
On Wednesday, March 16th, from 4:40-6:30pm, The Old Barracks Museum will be serving wine and hors d'oeuvres as they honor Mrs. Shockley with the 2016 Beulah Oliphant Award.
Linda Shockley is President of the Lawnside Historical Society, which owns the Peter Mott House Underground Railroad Museum in her hometown of Lawnside, NJ. Her efforts were instrumental in preventing the demolition of the Peter Mott House in 1989 and the preservation of the home in the early 1990s, as well as the formation of the Lawnside Historical Society. The Peter Mott House was added to the National and State Registers of Historic Places in 1994. Mrs. Shockley continues to write, seek funding for the house, guide tours, coordinate oral history projects, and organize the annual Jessie Redmon Fauset Day. She is supported and inspired by a dedicated group of officers, members, trustees, and donors who keep the association moving forward.
